Chisago Lakes Golf Course Reviews

Reviewed by: William Gray - Rudd, IA. Greg shoots in the 90s.
Review Summary: Chisago has always been a great course in the past. I played in a threesome today and I wouldn't spend the money again to play it. Greens are over run with winter kill. We saw 1, maybe 2 greens unaffected and the greens that were bad they put the pin in the bad area of the greens. After our round I took back the key for the cart and the person working in the pro shop thought I was wrong and then another person in my party over heard them making fun of someone else who shared my opinion of the course. It is about like playing golf at Afton alps.
Conditions: Winter kill on most of the greens and tee boxes.
Scenery: It was a nice course, maybe next year I might try it again. If I can get an ebay golf rate. Putting was tough because of the conditions of the greens
Layout: The course design is nice. Sometimes slow play but normally a 4 1/2 hr round. I will play 15-20 different courses this year and the lay out is very fair easy to walk in you wish.
Services: Limited of choice of food at the turn.

Review Summary: Course was in solid shape, they have turned the front and back nines around to work better with their new club house. Played in mid May.
Conditions: Fairways and greens in very nice shape. Green speed about average.
Scenery: Well treed, nice mixture of water hazards and open play. Geese, Turtles and Deer near.
Layout: One of my favorites. #5 (old #14) plays better than before tee box moved and tree line opened up. Even if a hole seems to be tough you have lay up areas to avoid the challenge if your not a big hitter.
Services: Service on the course--saw the cart person about 5 times.
